  • Alex was instrumental at helping me find the right home and sell my home at the same time, a hat trick that I thought was impossible in the crazy San Francisco real estate market. He's a real pro and anticipated all the usual and unusual surprises that happen in a sell and buy transaction.

  • San Francisco is a city littered with real estate agents that look at buyers and sellers as “just another lead” to make money, but Alex is the exceptionally rare breed of real estate agent that just “gets” it. Alex has helped me purchase two homes and there are two things that set Alex apart from the rest of the pack – patience and commitment. First, Alex was not only willing, but also actively enthusiastic about showing me a broad spectrum of properties while I was still unfocused in my search so that I could educate myself on individual micro-markets. Many agents would have considered this a waste of their time. Second, once I had started down the negotiation process, Alex was completely committed to my cause – i.e. getting the best deal possible. Even when the 12th hour was nigh, and it looked as if I was about to walk out of what was already a great deal because of some overlooked loose ends on the seller’s part, Alex didn’t pressure me at all to close the transaction. Instead, Alex worked with me to execute an especially well crafted negotiating maneuver that extracted thousands more from the seller.

  • When my wife and I decided to move up to San Francisco, we knew the real estate market would be incredibly challenging. From our first conversation with Alex, we recognized that he understood what it took to find the right property and make a compelling bid. It was an arduous five-month process, but Alex never tired in his search for our perfect home. He maintained the right balance of enthusiasm and realism when it came to choosing our bids. I consider it a mark of his good instincts that we came within a hair’s breadth of winning several earlier bids that we ultimately lost, since it meant that we were making offers that were competitive without being foolishly high. Once we found the amazing home we’re now in, Alex worked tirelessly to help us put together a winning bid—it takes a lot more than just choosing the right number, by the way—and close on time, despite a string of unexpected complications and swerves along the way. We can’t recommend Alex highly enough!

  • Great agent. Not only did Alex stick by us through multiple offers but finally landed us our new home even though we weren’t the highest bidders and we were up against all cash offers. By really getting to know us and meeting with the sellers agent at offer time Alex was able to position us as the best fit for the home. His knowledge & navigational skills through this unpredictable market combined with a down to earth sensibility and overall likability are a winning combination. Thanks Alex – we look forward to hosting you at our moving in party!! Lauranne, Mike and Mary

  • Alex is fabulous. He's super knowledgeable, personable, completely reliable, responsive, honest, thorough and on your side. Also very smart. He's the guy you want. I found him through a web search while living in Seattle and working on a relocation to SF. Stumbled onto his blog and figured that the person writing that blog was the person we wanted on our case to find our house for us. Turns out it was an excellent plan. My husband and I both love him and 4 years later still love our house. SF is an insane real estate market and Alex knows it like the back of his hand and knows how to play the game. And win! He might even turn you onto a little gem of a neighborhood you've never heard of before, like he did for my cousin. Great, talented guy, has a really lovely family, and is tops at what he does. Recommend him 100%.
